Rose Quartz is the stone of the heart, promoting love, friendship and harmonious relationships.

The loving energy of this stone is also calming and comforting.
Rose Quartz aids in healing a broken heart, easing tension, sadness, stress and loneliness.

The most common use of this stone is to attract and keep love.
Rose Quartz is the best stone to use for love spells and attracting love, friendship and romance.
This lovely pink stone brings harmony to relationships, but also promotes self-love and acceptance.

Rose Quartz is also used to preserve youth and beauty, as it is said to rejuvenate the skin.

Rose Quartz is sacred to Aphrodite, Goddess of Love.
Ares, God of War and Husband of Aphrodite, became jealous of his Wife’s lustful attraction to Adonis.
Ares changed himself into a boar and attacked the beautiful God, mortally wounding him.
When Aphrodite heard the cries of Adonis, she rushed to his aid.
As she reached the dying God, laid upon a patch of briars, she caught herself on a thorn.
She cradled her dying love and the blood of Aphrodite and Adonis combined, staining the white quartz pink.

Zeus took pity on the mournful Aphrodite, and restored Adonis to life for half of each year.
So Rose Quartz became a stone of love and reconcilled love.
